HC Deb 13 January 1971 vol 809 cc75-6W
Mr. Golding

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he intends to take following the decision of a leading drug company to stop using amphetamines in pep pills.

Mr. Maudling

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services and I shall be giving early consideration to the question of controlling the misuse of amphetamines in the light of the new powers that will be available when the Misuse of Drugs Bill becomes law, and of the continued need for the drugs in medical practice.
